columbia, to 50 in annapolis and kent island. winds on the calm side and light side in most cases and that in conjunction with clear skies is going to allow for what we call radiational cooling. it will allow the temperatures to really drop as we head into the overnight. not only does it mean a cool night, but a cool start to the day. you want to grab a jacket as you head out the door. the big picture on satellite and radar, that's this area of clear, dry air. associated with a cold front that will drop down and move through but not until tomorrow night. we'll see high pressure continue to stay in control of our forecast throughout the day tomorrow. we'll have a chilly start but a nice finish. temperatures will top out into the low and mid-60s as the day goes on for your monday. we will turn very seasonable for this time of year.
moving through as we head through tuesday, high pressure will build back in through that cold front. a little cloud cover later on in the day. high pressure building in, bringing us plenty of sunshine into tuesday, and clouds will increase as we head into wednesday. northwest winds tomorrow around about 5 knots. here's what you can expect for tonight. lows around 35. clear to partly cloudy. 63 for tomorrow. so a nice little rebound, especially since about the past four days or so we haven't hit that 60-degree mark. a very seasonable day in store for us tomorrow. 60 degrees as we head into tuesday. 65 on wednesday. then our next system will be heading our way. we're expecting it to get here on thursday night. it should be dry for the trick or treaters, at least during the evening time on thursday. this will be a notable rain event for us lasting into friday morning and perhaps the
first part of friday. we are going to warm up. 65 degrees by wednesday. 72 for halloween and 71 on friday. >> thanks. check in tomorrow morning starting at 4:55:00 a.m. and coming up next in sports. a rough day for a couple of the ravens division rivals. ,,,,,,,,
